Fried Mamak Mee and Green Tea Cake @ Garden Cafe, the Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Date: 14 April 2012
Place: Garden Lifestyle Store & Cafe @ Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Dish: Mamak Mee and Green Tea Cake
Price: See below

We were at the MidValley Megamall and the Gardens Mall today. I will normally come to the shopping malls when there is something that I need to buy, and both Malls is a great place when you need to compare prices before you make a purchase (it's really a one-stop shop!). As usual, weekends at most popular malls in Malaysia are packed with people- from all races, gender, and from the very young to the very old.

After a few hours of walking and checking different shops in the mall, I was a little hungry and Fried Mamak Mee came to mind. One would not normally have Fried Mamak Mee in a shopping mall when you are spoilt for choices. Fried Mamak Mee is a dish that one would usually eat in a "Mamak" stall.

Hence I was not sure if we could find any "authentic" Fried Mamak Mee here. Having tasted the Fried Mamak Mee at the Garden Lifestyle Store & Cafe, my better half brought me here.This place is located in the MidValley Megamall just before the link bridge to the Gardens Mall, and with its beautiful garden-themed decor and ambience, one will definitely not miss this place.

Fried Mamak Mee is basically noodles fried with fish paste and/ or chicken meat, vegetables, prawns, eggs and is normally spicy. The Fried Mamak Mee was good, so yes, I would recommend this place if one craves for it while shopping here. Price of course is on the high side due to the location and ambience. For dessert, I had Green Tea Cake. It was OK. I still prefer the one at RT Pastry which for me is the best bakery around. Drink was a pot of Camomile Tea, a refreshing finish to the meal:-)

P:S: For the benefit of non-Malaysian readers of my blog, here is a definition of Mamak from Wikipedia:
 'A mamak stall, is a food establishment which serves mamak food. In Malaysia, the term mamak refers to Tamil Muslims, who generally own and operate them. Although traditionally operated from roadside stalls, some modern mamak stall operators have expanded their businesses into restaurant or cafe-type establishments. Mamak stalls tend to be popular among Malaysian youths as hang out spots, due to cheap food and beverages being served 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.'
